Industry BenchPress and Networking Breakfast

Which applications for advanced ceramics have the highest growth potential? What are the industry’s biggest challenges right now? What are the most important innovations and technological developments in advanced ceramics, manufacturing and processing? And what do the rest of the industry think?

All will be answered (and more) at the new Industry BenchPress, an interactive panel discussion kickstarting the final day of Ceramics Expo 2018, and a chance for you – the audience – to vote on the most topical issues affecting the industry today. Arrive early and enjoy a complimentary breakfast!

 The Ceramics Expo Industry Bench Press is an interactive panel debate driven by live (and anonymous) audience polling. Take part in what promises to be a highly informative and memorable session where you can benchmark against your peers, hear expert commentary on the results over a complimentary networking breakfast with fellow visitors.
